How can I create an overtime payment rule?

Overtime payment rules are helpful to automate overtime calculation methods.

You will need to create rules if you decide to pay for employees' overtime. Overtime payment rules work as multipliers of the base salary.

Example: John typically works 7 hours on Monday at £10 per hour for Employer XYZ. Last Monday, he worked for 8 hours instead. Employer XYZ has created an overtime payment rule for that situation. As a result, employees earn 50% more than their regular rate for every extra hour worked. So last Monday, John's salary was as follow:

Standard hours: 7 hours x £10 = £70

Overtime: 1 hour x (£10 x 1.5) = £15

Total: £70 + £15 = £85

  1. Click on add a rule

  2. Add a title so you can easily remember when to apply this rule

  3. Add a pay code: it can be anything as long as it is short and can easily be remembered when mapping your nominal codes

  4. Add your hourly rate multiplier. It can only be a number.
